” Adjustments to the Combat Power of Various Pokémon


We have made adjustments to the CP (Combat Power) of various Pokémon. Some Pokémon, such as Alakazam, Rhydon, and Gengar will have their CP increased. Others will have their CP lowered. These changes will allow a more balanced and competitive battling and training experience in Gyms. We will continue to adjust the CP going forward to improve the game balance when necessary.

    Why not be able to train our Pokemon like the real original Pokemon games like battling in training and raising Pokemon and being able to raise it and change the attacks and battling with friends and new people you want people to really get back into it make these changes

    I do not like the decrease in my Pokémon cp I worked hard to get it where it was so to have it taken down is upsetting if people are ahead they will be ahead it’s because they worked hard you shouldn’t punish the people who play and work on their game just to even the playing field
